My Memorable Quotes
"True comfort is when 'someone' in your house is not only pooping with the door open and making business calls, but comes leaning out with pants around ankles to grab mail, sits back down on the pot and doesn't care that you could see the entire thing - and then leans a head out and asks for a pen." ~ Classic man move

10 Months Ago - The First Documented Case of Stinky Face

A Christmas Story
I was cooking in the kitchen one afternoon around Christmas 2010. The twins were real young and just starting to get around. I'm petrified of spiders so naturally I freaked out when I saw the shadow of a big scary bug by the back door. In our old home giant wolf spiders use to get in constantly so I didn't waste any time. I grabbed my shoe and threw it from across the room smashing the spider flat. I had never been so proud - It was a total Barbarian move. Very nervous, I turned the shoe over to make sure it was dead and it was a TURD! It had rolled out of my son Parker's diaper.

Memory of the Day
When I was growing up we would travel to Louisiana and Ohio often to visit family. Back then no one really flew so it was a lot of long drives with plenty of time to think. Every trip I would stare at the rooftop cargo carriers people had on the tops of their vehicles. We had a lot of cats back then - always about 6 or more at a time. I thought the cargo carriers were cat litter boxes; I mean hey, they look exactly the same as the litter boxes with lids. After countless trips wondering how they work I finally broke down and asked my parents - "Do people stop and put there cats in the cat boxes or do they keep the cats in there the whole time?" After explaining what I had been thinking we all got a good laugh - for years.
